If you like doing activities with your dog and want a fun way to put that special nose to work, try a sport called Trailing and Locating. Sanctioned by the North American Sport Dog Association, Trailing and Locating helps deter-mine a dog’s ability to track, trail — or follow — and locate quarry above ground.
When my Pit Bull-mix, Mookie, turned a year old, I knew his puppyhood was officially over. At the age of 1, he was now considered an adult. Of course, no one told him this, so he continued to be as playful and energetic as ever.
The old adage of “one year of a human’s life is equal to seven years in a dog’s life” is all wrong. Dogs mature more quickly than humans, so a simple one-to- seven calculation just isn’t accurate. The truth is that when your dog hits the age of 12 years, he has reached the equivalent of 64 human years if he’s a small dog (20 pounds or less); 69 human years if he’s a medium dog (21 to 50 pounds); and 77 human years if he’s a large dog (more than 50 pounds).
